Well the Sox are back on track: now they’ve only lost six of their last eight games, instead of six in a row. Tonight Curt Schilling takes the mound in search of win #15, but more importantly looking to stretch the Sox’ streak to three. Coupled with the expected Yankees loss to their SoCal nemesis, we can pull within 4.5. But don’t get any hopes up, ok?
(Oh, and make sure before you do any commenting on the game to head this way and read Bob Ryan’s column from today’s Globe — hat tip to commenter anonyf. It’s superb, one of the better columns I have read in a while, and it echos many of my own sentiments after hearing and reading all the vitriol that came out after the Yankees series this past weekend. Ryan is really on this week, and for that we should be thankful.)
